Two DC-Area Bakers Win At Walmart’s Open Call

WASHINGTON — Two Washington area bakers will get their goods on the shelves at Walmart stores after taking part in Walmart’s fourth annual U.S. Manufacturing Open Call.

Hyattsville, Maryland-based DC Sweet Potato Cake — whose cakes and cupcakes are already sold at a number of retailers including Starbucks, Safeway and Wegmans — received a deal to sell its products in 250 Walmart stores.

DC Sweet Potato Cake opened as Delectable Cakery in 1998, with its sweet potato cake serving as its most popular item.

D.C.-based Cakelove, founded by local baker Warren Brown, received a deal to sell its cake jars in 50 to 100 Walmart stores in the Washington region.
